Menu was very deceiving for the dinner selections chosen. Small portions with a hefty price attached. Presention of the food was more important that satisfied clients. We have been to Adesso many times before this change - this will be the last visit.

We believe in sophisticated but accessible dining — call it ‘complexity without complication’ — set in our intimate dining room, and in the warmer months, on our European-styled patio. Both are natural gathering spots — for our old friends from the neighborhood, and for our new ones from around the globe.
